I have several different applications where I would like to read or write
simple ascii files from msdos or pcdos floppies on my Kaypro 4.  A format
utility that came with the Kaypro allows me to write to a VT180 disk which
I can read on the DEC Rainbow.  The Rainbow has a program to read the CPM
file over to MSDOS.  The process does not work the other direction so most
transfers have been via modem.  

The Kaypro program also lists a few IBM formats but wouldn't they be a CPM 
format and not PCDOS.  Now I need to get documents to and from an IBM PC 
that I do not have access to.  I only get the floppies.  Does anyone have a 
conversion program or any other suggestions?
